Leaf Logistics launched Flex Fleets, what’s said to be a first-of-its-kind multi-shipper dedicated fleet that boasts the agility to adapt to market demand.
“At Leaf, we’re focused on giving our customers tools to make their job in freight transportation easier,” says Anshu Prasad, CEO of Leaf Logistics. “Flex Fleets builds on this promise by offering shippers the benefits of dedicated service with the agility of market contracted freight. Shippers, carriers, and brokers are able to schedule fleets months ahead of time to lock in capacity and keep trucks moving, making their jobs easier through predictable, forecasted capacity."
- Flex Fleets are an extension of Leaf’s platform coordination and planning capabilities. The program leverages Leaf Adapt technology to analyze shippers’ data and coordinate multi-shipper moves across the transportation grid. This eliminates empty miles associated with unloaded trucks driving on the road, which reduces shipping costs and removes the carbon emissions associated with unloaded trucking miles. Leaf’s unique Flex contracting and fleet capabilities allow shippers to lock in longer-term contracts with favorable transportation providers.
- For carriers and brokers, Flex Fleets offer a unique ability to secure work in a preferred domicile in a repeatable capacity. Carriers who participate in a Flex Fleet gain favorable schedules and lock in guaranteed work and rates for months or years at a time. This allows truck drivers to build a reliable income stream with a schedule they prefer.
